Basic Engineering Thermodynamics addresses the needs of BTech and BE students studying thermodynamics as a core course. Using his forty-year experience in teaching, the author methodically explains difficult and abstract concepts, making them easy to understand as well as interesting. Numerous carefully chosen solved problems and exercises are given to coach the eager student to tackle every concept.

Dr R Nagarajan, formerly Director, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, mentions in his foreword to this edition,
‘There are some who believe that we have reached a stage of “saturation” in developments based on Thermodynamic. However, time and again, it opens up new vistas.....

Professor Venkatesh has provided a thorough, comprehensive and traditional treatment of basic thermodynamics, which is of direct interest and relevance to students of Mechanical, Chemical and Aeronautical Engineering.’
